Martin Luther King Day Service Opportunities

January 18, 2015 5:00 pm

This year, to help celebrate the memory of Dr. King, several organizations throughout King County will be holding a day of service for anyone interested in taking a few hours, or a full day, and devoting it to giving back. Most major organizations will be holding events on Mon the 19th at various locations around the community, however a good resource for these events is the United Way of King County. Their website features links and directions to volunteer opportunities ranging from building homes to collecting food for food banks, and it is a fantastic way to get connected with a group your are passionate about!

Their site can be found here: http://www.uwkc.org/ways-to-volunteer/mlkday and if you do choose to volunteer for the day, we would love to hear about it down at the office!

Whether you are in the mud laying a foundation for a new house, helping out at your local shelter, or even just spreading the message of Dr. King, we would like to wish you all a wonderful Martin Luther King Day, and look forward to continuing to spend a great 2015 with you all!

These Recipes Make It Easy to Cook Gourmet Meals for Two

January 14, 2015 5:02 pm

Looking for recipes perfect for two people? Sourced from the stylish web magazine The Kitchn, these three dishes look—and taste!—like they took all day to prepare, when, in fact, they're quite simple.

Thai Red Curry Mussels
Fit for a Friday night of lounging in front of the TV, this recipe swaps utensils for pieces of crusty bread, which is ideal for sopping up the mussels' coconut milk-curry broth.

Penne alla Vodka
With just a hint of vodka, a creamy tomato sauce coats penne pasta in this easy recipe. Red pepper flakes, salty parmesan cheese, and fresh basil provide the garnish. Because this recipe serves four to six people, you'll likely have plenty of leftovers for tomorrow's lunch.

30-Minute Coq Au Vin
This recipe for coq au vin can rival that of any fancy French restaurant, and it can go from start to finish in under an hour. Serve this one-pot meal with crusty French bread, egg noodles, roasted potatoes, and, of course, a glass of red wine.
